Twitch has announced its latest benefit to its Twitch Prime subscribers: one free year of the Nintendo Switch Online service, which generally costs $ 19.99.
The transmission site is providing the free service in a two-stage process: first, the subscribers can claim a free membership of three months, and after 60 days, they can return to obtain the other nine months (presumably to prevent that people register for a single month, claim the year for free and rescue). The agreement is open to new and existing Switch Online subscribers: current users will get additional months added to their existing plan.
Since Twitch Prime is part of Amazon Prime, which costs $ 12.99 per month or $ 119 per year, it's not worth purchasing a subscription just for the Switch Online service on your own (keeping in mind that you must pay at least two months to get the full year), but if you already pay for Amazon Prime, it's essentially a no-brainer, especially because it accumulates with existing Switch Online subscriptions.
As for Switch Online itself, it offers numerous benefits for Switch players, including the ability to play online games, save in the cloud and what can be the best part of the service: access to classic NES games and exclusive titles like Tetris 99 .
According to Twitch, Prime subscribers will have until September 28 to exchange the three-month subscription, and until January 28, 2020 to exchange the membership for nine months. In addition, the broadcast site warns that "Nintendo Switch Online membership will automatically become a 3-month membership for $ 7.99 unless the automatic renewal is deactivated at any time up to 48 hours before the end of the initial 3-member membership. months, "so be sure to check your renewal settings after claiming your free service if you do not want to pay extra.
